Beware! Extended bouts of Far Cry 2 can cause you to kill everyone you see. Counter Strike can cause premature school shooting. Pro gaming can lead to untimely death by falling out of a tree. Sound ridiculous? Assuming you’re reading this because you are a fan of the hobby, I’m sure it does. However, what if you’ve never played these games in question? What if you’ve never even picked up a controller or furiously clicked a mouse? While I would hope that the majority of people out there would take the necessary steps to educate themselves, or at the very least, keep a sense of skepticism at such absurd sensationalist media, the truth is that too many people believe whatever they see and hear.
What are we to do? We can try to educate them but that would go over as well as an NRA spokesman trying to teach you the virtues of owning an automatic rifle. We are biased. My proposition? Give them exactly what they want.
Well, it looks like a serious blow might have been dealt to the competitive gaming community today. The Cyberathlete Amateur League, or simply CAL, looks to be in some form of stasis right now. For those unfamiliar, CAL started in 2001 as a competitive Counter Strike league. Over the past seven and a half years, the league has expanded to cover 25 different games, most recently adding Valve’s Left 4 Dead to its roster. So what happened? Right now, its not quite certain, but there has been some hand-changing lately. Angel Munoz of NewWorld.com, the previous owner of both CAL and CPL (Cyberathlete Professional League), sold both properties to a new Middle-Eastern company, CPL Holdings Group. So rumor has it that the CAL admins are locked out of their accounts and the servers are being moved from 10 Linux boxes to 1 Windows box. Here’s what’s for sure. The original CAL site (www.caleague.com) is dead as well as the forums. A new site, however, www.cplholdings.com, seems to be up and looks deceptively like the old site (just wait, a small alien is going to tear its way through the site’s chest and spit acid in your eyes). Oh, the forums seem to have been moved as well. One last thing, CAL’s anti-cheat system, ACS, isn’t working due to the changeover, so all matches are postponed until further notice. So will this actually be the end of CAL? Will this company breath new life into the league? Will I finally have to stop playing Counter-Strike: Source? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Oh, and to those who say, “Hey Logan, less qq and more pew pew. Why don’t you join a different league?”, I have this to say: CAL for free > paying for CEVO or ESEA, so STFU and GTFO.
Well, with that being said, I’ll leave you with a video on the jump. As par for the course, don’t watch it in good company as it is NSFW.
